Visalia Opera Company presents Mozart's Le Nozze di Figaro

For its second full production, Visalia Opera Company presents Mozart's Le Nozze di Figaro November 8-10th at the Main Street Theatre in downtown Visalia!

Many opera-lovers would name Le Nozze di Figaro (The Marriage of Figaro) as their favorite opera. It appeals to the most intellectual listener, but also to music-lovers seeking great melodies and ensembles and to those seeking only entertainment. One of three operas by Mozart, it represents one of the pinnacles not just of operatic but of human achievement.

Figaro, a servant to Count Almaviva, is ready to settle down and marry his beloved Susanna. All varieties of problems—a Count with a roving eye, an unpaid debt, an amorous young pageboy, and missing parents—make this one of the craziest days seen on the operatic stage!

Performances are Friday, November 8 and Saturday, November 9 at 7pm, with a matinee Sunday, November 10 at 2:30pm.

Performed in Italian with English supertitles.
